It's all kinds of reasons why people be drunk.

My so-called step-daddy drinks.
You can smell the alcohol on him.

He stays drunk and is always spitting
trying to get the taste of wine out of his mouth.
He chews gum but the taste and bad breath keep coming back.

Flames come out of his mouth when he talks
and my friends call him, "Dragon"
when they call him that I get mad
and try to pop the first one I can get a hold of!

Every time my step-daddy opens his mouth
we see the hellified flames
that be burning in his mind cause he can't get no job.

When he is drinking he got
the devil's walk
the devil's grin
the devils' face

and his eyes BLAZE.
